This review is from: Quake 4 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
If you like first person shooters and have a Xbox 360 you will be in a very good mood. The 360 already has some very good first person shooters and this game is one of them.
Now some reviews have said that the graphics runs off the same engine as Doom 3. Now I have not played Doom 3 so to me the graphics looked fresh. The lighting effects are very impressive and if your playing alone in the dark there is a real feeling of suspense. You feel an urgent need to use your torch to search for hidden foes in the dark. Now and then something jumps out on you!! Everything else looks very good graphics wise.
The guns are the games second strenth. The weapons are very satisfying and each fire arm has strenths and weaknesses to concider before use. This adds a small amount of thought to proceedings.
Enemy AI is solid. Foes take cover and work together to over power you. This makes this first person shooter perhaps the hardest to date. You cant blast and hope as you can in other shooters. Taking cover and picking off enemys becomes a useful skill.
The only real weakness I can think of is that some of the levels look very much like each other.That and the vehicle sections, although good, dont stand up as well as other parts of the game.
So not perfect but a very good game all the same!
